“You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you, and we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” -Arthur Plotnik
Just as "a man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client" the same may be said about an author who is his own editor. Most authors are very passionate about their work, and rightfully so. After spending months, maybe years, creating their masterpiece, it is often times very difficult for the author to remain objective about his topic. This is where the editor steps in. Our editors have years of experience and will make sure that your work has the proper grammar, syntax and flow required for a professional result. We are also fluent in American history; this allows us to check content for factual errors and omissions.
"Indexes are significant, value-added book elements. I love footnotes; I love timelines; I love maps. I need indexes." -Rachel Rice
An index is a vital component for books and particularly those used as reference tools. Many times the index is the first sampling of your work that the reader will experience and as such it should act as a road map to specific points of interest. A well-built index will also help with the promotion of your writings to readers and libraries alike so it is imperative that your index be as concise and informative as possible. Indexing is a skill that may or may not come naturally to you, and American History Press does not assume that just because you are a good author that you know how to create a good index. If you have been struggling with creating an index or do not want to even consider creating one, please contact us and we will have one of our experienced indexers work with you to create the perfect index that your book deserves!
